A Generalised Stock-Out Function for Continuous Production Variables
AbstractThis paper follows up a previous study for optimising a production-inventory system when external demand is stochastic.A modified stock-out function is presented to cover more generalsituation when cumulative production may be a continuousvariable. Optimisation equations are further investigated,including the sufficient conditions for optimisation.
